Me? A Football Nut? Steeler Nation!

Well, okay, maybe not quite that!
But what a great game! I was waving my Terrible Towel all the way (except at one point I forgot...hmm...they weren't doing very well at that point, either - maybe there really is magic in those towels?)

Much good food, beer (okay, ale!), conversation (SIL knows more about football than I do, so there was even some instruction going on), and knitting - yes, I did knit, in between Terrible Towel waving. SIL's pretty Miss Tabby Cat was quite incensed about what fools we made of ourselves yelling at the TV, and her Lhasa Apso slept blissfully through it all - being both stone deaf and mostly blind has it's advantages, Miss TC!

Progress was made on the Raven socks. (See, I do remember that this is a knitting blog)

And decisions were made about two upcoming cat shows for Nana Sadie Rose - more to come on that note, but if you're near Richmond, VA and Charlotte NC in April? Make a mental note now to come see us!

Wow...that was some game - a 100-yard interception TD and then another game-saving TD in the last 40 seconds of the game. (Gee, I hope I wrote that correctly?)

(And the Knitnana crowd goes wild!!!!)
(I'm so going to regret this tomorrow morning...)

There was a game yesterday? Darn, I love baseball. ;)

Your sox are cute! All knit up nicely despite the mess (the Berocco sox a couple of posts ago - I was offline for a day or two).

Congratulations to your contest winners! I'll have to check out your Etsy shop.

I didn't see the game - no TV, you know - but the clips I saw of Bruce's halftime show were something, my...

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
